What are the environments in which the xelatex binaries run? In  
TERMINAL you can simply invoke the env command, for TeXShop you'll  
need an ENGINE file with this contents:


The error is that an old legacy pixel font (cmr12) is neither found  
nor the MAP file with its entry. Both is not likely. A possible  
workaround is in the preamble


because cmr12 is usually used in the pagination – and the 12 pt size  
comes from the option passed to article class.

Another strange phenomenon is that in TeXShop's console you have


while on the command line

	No file minimal_example.aux.

is reported. (The file is later created.) When it was successfully  
created in TeXShop (you see it in your citation), why is it missing  
from the command line? Because you are trying to compile two different  
files? Just for fun you could invoke on the command line

	kpsewhich cmr12.tfm

What is the output?

Send us the environments! PWD will be contained in the two lists.
